In 2014, B-Built realized an automated highbay warehouse operated by NewCold Advanced Logistics, on a part of the former Newmarket Colliery territory. The piece of land, which is 16 acres big, is located in Wakefield near junction 30 of the M62. This warehouse is part of the redevelopment of Newmarket Lane and the current construction activities concern the second phase of this project.
In the first phase, Brem Funderingsexpertise provided the piling supervision, where we ensured that the piling works were executed according to the requirements and arrangements, which were set up by ABT. For the second phase, Brem Funderingsexpertise will provide the same activities as in the first phase. The supervisor will not constantly monitor the activities of piling and drilling rigs, but he will supervise and assess the overall quality of the foundation piles. This means that the supervisor from Brem and the structural engineer from ABT in The Netherlands, will have consultations regularly. Because our client chose to hire a manager (instead of the normal supervisor), he barely has to worry about any of the foundation activities. Everything is arranged on-site by our supervisor in conjunction with the piling company or by email when the supervisor is not on site. Our client receives related progress reports on a regular basis. Vroom International Piling provides the foundation piles for this project that consists of CFA and Vibro piles.
The main language on site will be English. (An English report will be set up when the foundation activities are completed.) After the completion of the foundation activities, an as built report will be finished and the report will be sent per email in PDF format. In addition to the supervising, we carried out a vibration measurements on the adjacent buildings, commissioned by B-Built.
Our goal as Brem is to unburden B-Built, and to carry out the foundation process as controlled as possible so that the final client, NewCold, receives a perfect foundation!
